We are called to Wake Up the World


The year dedicated to consecrated life will begin on 30th November 2014, 1st Sunday of Advent, and will end February 2, 2016, World day of consecrated life; Moreover, with the publication of the first circular letter "Rejoice", religious men and women are invited to a comparison between the Gospel and life, from the teaching of Pope Francis, urging the religious to" wake up the world "with the good life that generates" joy ", which is real and  contagious."

Among other initiatives, it is thought of a global chain of prayer in the monasteries; it should accompany the performance of the year dedicated to consecrated. And a very good proposal: prayer is the essence of the contemplative life and this is of paramount importance to the mission of the church, since "God, in answer to prayer, send laborers into his harvest, opens the minds of non Christians because they listen to the gospel and makes present in their hearts the message of salvation
